And the clock starts now.

President Trump on Wednesday selected Robert C. O’Brien, the State Department’s chief hostage negotiator, to become his national security adviser, moving to reconstitute his foreign policy staff even as he faces rising tension with Iran.

In choosing Mr. O’Brien to replace John R. Bolton, who left the White House last week, the president chose a Los Angeles lawyer who had impressed him with his work to extricate Americans detained by countries like North Korea and Turkey. But it is not clear how different his advice will be from his predecessor given that Mr. O’Brien previously worked for Mr. Bolton and has cited his hawkish views in the past.

Mr. Trump announced the selection on Twitter shortly after saying he would also “substantially increase Sanctions” on Iran after weekend attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia that officials in Washington and the region have blamed on the Tehran government.

So let’s see, that Michael Flynn, H.R. McMaster, and John Bolton who all tackled this job and failed. 

Let’s see, the first one was fired in less than a month and then indicted, the seond was fired after a year and two months, and the third was fired or resigned, dependong on who is telling the story, after a year and five months. 

So how long do we think this O’Brien character will last?

    While an NSC job has historically been known as a launchpad for high-flying careers, these officials tell NPR that under Trump, U.S. foreign policy has become so erratic, confrontational and politicized that many feel out of place — or worse.

    “On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that the source of the whistleblower complaint currently being suppressed by the Director of National Intelligence is a phone conversation between President Donald Trump and a foreign leader.

    According to the report, the whistleblower became aware that the president made a “promise” to this unspecified foreign leader, and was so disturbed by the nature of that promise that he or she filed a complaint through channels set up to help whistleblower claims involving classified information.

    Congress is set to receive a briefing on the complaint from the intelligence community inspector general in a closed-door hearing on Thursday.”<Rawstory

    Prominent GOP personalities grow older like the rest of us, I guess. All of a sudden, they seem to be pasty-faced and silver haired. Is that supposed to inspire confidence in the American people? I hope this O’Brien guy cares more about the country than about his shiny head or about Don the Con. Do we think he’ll be able to stay the course as national security director or will he be shown the door within 12 months too? Don the Con seems to think he’s still on television – firing those nat’l security directors every few months, just for the fun of it.
